Revolutionary Dental Implant Material Technology: Trabecular Metal

Description:
To date, enhancement to implant surface technology has been evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Trabecular Metal has changed all that. This is because Trabecular Metal allows for true bone 'in-growth' rather than just on-growth. This webinar will highlight, in detail, this new implant surface technology, related literature, as well as its enhancing effect on current clinical implant protocols. In addition, techniques for immediate provisionalization of this implant will also be covered in an accompanying surgical video.

Questions & Comments

Henry, With this system I have found that the crestal threads allow for good stability in staged implant surgery and the apical threads provide for stability in immediate implant situations. Adequate insertion torque is something I feel strongly about and was initially concerned about with this implant. With some tweaking of the drilling protocol I have not found this to be the case.

Charles, I did get a tremendous amount of information on tantalum and it application to vitreous carbon while in Parsippany, NJ at Zimmer manufacturing plant but I am not sure of the exact method that the titanium is fused to the tantalum sleeve. I can say that I have found this implant to be as strong as the TSV implant and am only minimally concerned about galvanic reaction between these 2 very inert materials.

Hi Richard, my compliments on very nice presentation. I'm interested in knowing your thoughts conceptually on how the loss of threads, that would otherwise be in the area taken up by the trabecular metal, effects initial primary stability and early loading? thanks

Dear Sam, My experiences with the trabecular metal implant have all been favorable but I have not loaded any in 2 weeks. I leave all provisionals just out of contact in centric occlusion and excursions.

Sam Busich - (12/10/2012 1:18 PM)

Dr. Akin; Any follow ups on this new implant that you can provide for us? Radiographic changes, early loading responses. Do you feel that a 2 week load protocol is acceptable with the TM? thanks Sam

Richard,nice video. Immediate screw retained provisionals are ideal when possible. Do you know how the these trabecular metal implants are manufactured. It seems to me these implants are constucted with titanium and tantalum. I am curious how the two metals interphase (Strengh? galvanic reaction?). The Orthopedic trabecular metal components are only made of tantelum. I would be interested to hear your thoughts. Thank you again. Chuck

Dear Mauricio, I think the risk of peri-implantitis is very low due to the tantalum surface being present along the body of the implant and not at the crest.

Richard Akin - (5/25/2012 12:17 AM)

Dear Alper, I am very optimistic about the application of this material to a dental implant. My early experience is positive and I feel that the 'ingrowth' versus 'ongrowth' component of these implants changes the discussion from BIC to bone incorporation. Clinically, my early success rates have been exceptional. More time and data is needed to determine how it performs under function.

Dear Matthew, The PEEK plastic abutment is a prefabricated abutment made of a highly inert material. It is my preferred abutment due to its ease of use.

In this lecture and video case report, “conservative” management of posterior maxillary extraction sites are highlighted featuring new tools, techniques and biologics. How to extract teeth to preserve the socket environment using piezosurgery and extractor instruments is followed by simplified grafting with a synthetic bone substitute and biologic seal. After 4 months, the video 2nd surgery is clearly displayed with flap reflection, bone assessment and implant placement in a conservative staged approach. This is followed by final suturing using a running mattress.

S.M.A.R.T. Minimally Invasive Bone Grafting
Introduction to the S.M.A.R.T. TM Minimally Invasive Bone Grafting Technique is a novel minimally invasive bone grafting technique developed by Dr. Ernesto Lee. It provides superior outcomes with less pain, less swelling and fewer complications than traditional bone grafting procedures. Only a small incision is required, with no flap elevation, no tenting screws and no membranes. Complex, high risk scenarios can now be treated with minimal risk of complications. The S.M.A.R.T. TM method represents a disruptive technology that will dramatically impact the future of bone grafting

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry
Augmentive ridge preservation techniques aim to manage the postextraction ridge. The partial extraction of teeth may better preserve the ridge form by maintaining the bundle bone-periodontal tissues and preserve the ridge beneath dentures or fixed prostheses. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results contributory to esthetic implant treatment. A retrospective 10-patient case series treating 14 partial extraction sites demonstrates how a modification of the socket-shield technique can successfully develop pontic sites and preserve the ridge.
